What it means to be initiated into the secret of the mystery. Part 99. The antagonism of the world system toward believers and Bible doctrine. Part 2.
Thursday, October 6, 2005
Hate is what we can expect from a world that is out of touch with God and out of union with TLJC because there is disunion between the believer and the world.
The world is the Kosmos = an organized system.
2. Kosmos is a system of thought designed by Satan himself, who is the greatest creature genius, of all creature history.
Kosmos = a system of organizations.
3. The kosmos or the world = a system of people, or a category of people.
“World” - used for the unbelievers, Joh 17.
a. A system of thought, satanic.
b. Organizations, satanic, like international organizations.
c. The world of unbelievers.
The one who rules the kosmos is Satan; ISA 14:12-17, EZE 28:11-19, JOH 8:44, 1JO 3:8, describe the person of Satan, the greatest genius of all creatures.
He is an organizational genius with a great organization of demons, EPH 6:10-12.
He is the originator of murder and violence in the human race, GEN 5:4-11; JOH 8:44, 1JO 3:12.
He hates the communication of Bible doctrine, MAT 13:9,39, REV 12:13,15, and attacks your capacity for life.
He is the enemy of the Church (the Royal Family), REV 12:9-13, 24.
He is the enemy of Christ, REV 12:4.
Satan is the enemy of Israel. All anti-Semitism is satanic, REV 12:4,13,15.
Satan is even the enemy of all unbelievers. He is the greatest deceiver of all time. In 2CO 4:3-4, he blinds the minds of unbelievers, which is demon influence or the demonization of the soul.
2CO 4:1 Since God has so generously let us in on what he is doing, we’re not about to throw up our hands and walk off the job just because we run into occasional hard times.
2CO 4:2 We refuse to wear masks and play games. We don’t maneuver and manipulate behind the scenes. And we don’t twist God’s Word to suit ourselves. Rather, we keep everything we do and say out in the open, the whole truth on display, so that those who want to can see and judge for themselves in the presence of God.
Satan also manipulates nations, REV 12:9,23; 20:3,8.
1. The mental will of God, doctrine, EPH 4:14.
2. The geographical will of God for you, 1TH 2:18.
3. The operational will of God for you, JAM 4:7-8; GAL 5:7.
Worry, fear, anxiety, mental attitude sins, and reaction to historical disaster, 1PE 5:7-9.
Getting the believer to be disobedient to the Word and the Pastor’s authority involved in teaching it.
Ignoring doctrine you have learned, 1CH 21:1.
a. Satan causes you to get your eyes on people, GEN 19:28; GEN 20:1; JER 17:5.
b. He causes you to get your eyes on self, 1KI 19:10; 1CO 1:10-11.
c. He causes you to get your eyes on things, HEB 13:5-6.
d. He tries to get the believer to become involved in improvement of his (Satan’s) world through improving the environment, “the greatest good for the greatest number,” socialism, social action, the social Gospel, welfare state, and temporal solutions to man’s problems.
e. He sponsors fear regarding death, HEB 2:14-15, because he knows fear kills thought.
Religion is the creation of Satan promoting the use of his own merits, his own works to gain the approbation of God.
Satan’s counterfeits of the PPOG in religion include a counterfeit:
1. Gospel, 2CO 4:3-4.
2. Ministers, 2CO 11:13-15.
3. Doctrines, 1TI 4:1.
4. Communion table, 1CO 10:19-21.
5. Spirituality, GAL 3:2-3.
6. Righteousness, MAT 19:16-28.
7. Legalism, MAT 23:13-36.
8. Power and dynamics (miracles, healing, tongues), 2TH 2:8-10.
9. System of gods, 2TH 2:3-4.
Hate - pres-act-ind - misei - miseiâ€™ = strongest word for hate in the Greek language.
It is an intense hatred by its structure and it expresses the intensity of the antagonism of mental attitude and a thought pattern.
There is a system of thought that despises you, and part of that system of thought is legalism and religionism, and do-goodism, and bleeding-heartism, and all the rest of it.
The true attitude of kosmos diabolicos toward the believer is an intensified implacability hatred system - “miseo.”
Active voice = the kosmos system will always hate you; the indicative mood is the reality, face it.
To know - indicative mood used as an imperative, with the present tense = “you keep on knowing.”
Before the Church-age existed with the believer priest in the intensified stage, the kosmos system always hated Christ; it hated Christ from GEN 3:15, until His resurrection and session.
